"Concurrently, the new company, which is wholly government-owned, is undertaking to enter into a lease agreement so that the same slots will continue to be operated by Air Malta at an agreed commercial fee for a long-term period," said the government in a statement.
It said the strategy was part of the government's objective to transform Air Malta into the airline of the Mediterranean. ■
